A stroke occurs when the brain is deprived of sufficient blood flow, leading to an interruption in the delivery of vital oxygen and nutrients. A delayed disruption of normal blood flow can cause lasting damage to brain tissue. The key to recovery is the administration of treatment within the first couple of hours after having had a stroke. This has been shown to improve long term outcomes.
